How We Outperform the Competition
The Nugent Advantage

Internal metal parts such as pads, springs, pins, and levers are purposely excluded. These pieces can break loose and damage equipment. Remember, half of all internal parts are on the clean side of your duplexed system with nothing to stop them in the event of a failure. This cannot happen with Nugent Zero Leakage Transfer Valves.

Internal metal parts such as pads, springs, pins, and levers are purposely excluded

Stainless steel valve plugs or stainless steel balls are specified in API 614, 3rd edition. Nugent Zero Leakage Transfer Valves comply with the speculation in total. Their API transfer valves may include carbon steel and bronze internal parts, thereby violating the intent of the specification. This is not so with Nugent Zero Leakage Transfer Valves.

 

Transferring flow from one system to another is easy with Nugent Zero Leakage Transfer Valves:

  1. Open valve on equalizing line (provided) to fill and equalize pressure in both systems.
  2. Rotate handle to redirect flow.
  3. Close valve on equalizing line.

Other valve suppliers force you to unscrew locking mechanisms to release pads or tapered plugs before making the transfer. These short cuts in the field lead to permanently damaged valves resulting in leaks that become an environmental hazard, or worse, a health risk to personnel. These potential liabilities do not exist with Nugent Zero Leakage Transfer Valves.

Valve shoes or pads can restrict flow while passing over the inlet and outlet ports. This can cause a temporary pressure drop resulting in equipment shutdown. This does not happen with Nugent Zero Leakage Transfer Valves.

Maintenance, if required, is easy. Simply remove the retaining ring at the top of the valve body and lift the rotor out via a standard threaded eyebolt provided as part of our complete Seal Kit. Slip the new seals into place, lubricate the rotor, and gently tap the rotor back into place. Nugent Zero Leakage Transfer Valves do not require any special tools or complex maintenance instructions.
